Milk is a natural food source for mammals. Animals, including humans, produce milk to feed their young until they are ready for solid food.

As such, milk contains valuable nutrients that help support a growing body, including calcium and protein.

Research about milk is conflicting, however, with different studies claiming milk is either good or bad for the body.

Due to rising concerns about health, lactose intolerance, and animal welfare, plant-based milk, and dairy alternatives are gaining popularity.
